    When I submit files for Assignments, some of them need to have specific naming, for example, in order to run a code. However, when I resubmit a file I uploaded before, a number appears after the name, indicating that it is a copy of a previous file. I tried to fix this by deleting my previous submissions, but Canvas does not allow me to delete them. This creates a problem as I cannot rename my current submission.

    In addition, I cannot choose to submit more than one previously submitted file at a time; this is also a problem.

    I suggest that Canvas allow us to delete or rename our submission files, and allow selecting of multiple previously submitted files, so that they may be correctly named as the professor requests.
